    LONDON, 5th December 2013 – TMX AtriumÔ, provider of smarter infrastructure solutions for the financial community, today announced that Aquis Exchange*, the pan-European equities exchange, has joined the TMX Atrium community.

The decision taken by Aquis Exchange to use TMX Atrium is in direct recognition of TMX Atrium’s ability to help new exchanges launch and, enable growth through access to a wide range of trading participants. TMX Atrium’s reach across Europe, North America and Russia, delivers flexible connectivity and enables easy expansion when new venues join. 

    The flexible connectivity model used by TMX Atrium complements Aquis Exchange’s ethos of offering choices to members in connectivity, clearing and technology.  Aquis Exchange operates a subscription pricing model, whereby users are charged according to the message traffic they generate rather than a percentage of the value of each stock they trade.

    About Aquis Exchange

    *Aquis  Exchange is regulated as a multilateral trading facility by the UK FCA.  It was established in October 2012 and operates a pan-European equities trading exchange and develops exchange software. Aquis Exchange is set to revolutionize the European trading landscape by its introduction of subscription pricing and innovative order types. Currently, over 90% of European equity trading in each individual country takes place on two exchanges. The aim of Aquis Exchange is to bring fresh competition into the marketplace in order to lower the trading costs maintained by the existing duopoly.

    Aquis Exchange’s subscription pricing works on a similar model to that of the telecoms industry and is designed to encourage participation from all categories of professional trading firm. Users are charged according to the message traffic they generate, rather than a percentage of the value of each stock that they trade. There are different pricing bands to accommodate varying degrees of usage, with a very low usage band for small firms – who are traditionally disadvantaged by the pricing structure of the incumbent exchanges. On the other end of the pricing structure, is the top category where usage is unlimited (subject to a “fair usage” policy).
